In the past, we also hosted on Airbnb. You can find some of our reviews here:

We stayed here for a little more than two months from November 2016 – to early January 2017. The apartment has pluses and minuses. First the positives:
1. It is well located. Shopping of all kind within a block of the apartment, and a short walk to Cal Tech. Pasadena is a nice little city with lots of restaurants and entertainment of all sorts.
2. It is recently renovated and is a large beautiful space. Nice looking kitchen & living room, comfortable memory foam beds. Nice outdoor patio for evening dining. Large space.
3. The owner (Glendy) and her husband are very nice to work with in-person.
4. It is very quiet - well off the street and quiet neighbors.
5. The underground parking is very convenient.
There were, however, some drawbacks which is why we did not give 5 stars. Most could be fixed easily; if they are fixed and if we could reliably reach the owner, then we would definitely recommend this apartment.
1. The internet is very poor. We never got a strong signal, but frequently it stopped entirely. The router is not located in the apartment so we could not reboot it. On one occasion, the internet was out for hours, and owner did not respond to email or text so we had to go elsewhere for internet services that day.
2. The apartment is sparsely provided with furniture and needed household items - fewer than are found in most VRBO or Homeaway apartments. We asked for additional items, including a lamp, toaster & broom, and the owner provided some things, but did not want to provide all of them. We purchased additional lamps, a desk, rugs, kitchen utensils and dishes - some which we left behind. Note that there is no oven (the website description is incorrect), just a cook-top. If you need a rice cooker, there is none and the owner does not want to provide one.
3. The central furnace does not work, & there were no instructions to heat the apartment. Despite repeated emails & texts the owner never responded concerning this problem. We were able to heat the apartment barely using the air conditioners run in a heating mode (look for the red button on the window unit in each room). It was always rather uncomfortably cold & too loud to sleep, so we turned off the heaters at night & bought a fan to circulate the air.
In sum, we might look harder for different apartment next time. There are many others near this apartment, however it might be hard to find one that is furnished and allows a short term leas
We spent three weeks in California for vacation during the summer. The apartment is well mantained, it very well located and the owner is kind and responsive. We highly recommend this property for short stays.
A very nice two bedroom apartment clean and so comfortable. Really a great location.
We spent 3 days in Pasadena at Glendy's apartment and it was great. Glendy is very responsive through emails or text, and the apartment is gigantic, it could easily fit 5 persons. Apartment was clean and well located in the heart of Pasadena, close to many shops and restaurants, as well as Caltech. We will definitively use this apartment again next time in Pasadena, five stars!
We really enjoyed our stay and will return. The apartment was everything we needed. It was clean and well maintained. The beds were so relaxing and we always had a great nights' sleep! We had no problem with water pressure and the shower had really hot water that never went cold. That was definitely a bonus. The overall layout of the apartment was simple and appreciated. The kitchen was well equipped, but did not have an oven, coffee pot or corkscrew. We had to buy a coffee pot at Rite Aid down the road. The apartment was conveniently located with a Starbucks around the corner and Panda Express across the way. We were right off the Rose Parade route as well. We really enjoyed having Netflix; however, it did need to buffer frequently. We were able to watch Netflix without interruption late at night.
